Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Strawberries have never been rendered in such a beautiful way! These cuties are bound to bring memories of joy from those fun summer moments picking strawberries or picnics eating these fresh beauties. This quilt was made by our Maker Zoila.
Zoila is 33-years-old. Zoila has lived in the bordo for 14 years She has a daughter, Yacxiri, and she is 13-years-old, and a 12-year-old step son named, Julio. Yacxiri and Julio were both born in the Bordo and they go to school close by.
Here is a sweet message from Zoila:
"I am very grateful to God first because he put in my path to good people like Courtney and her family because thanks to them I can have a job by way of making the quilts helps me a lot for our support to buy what we need in our home. I also thank them for buying my quilts, I sew them with a lot of love with my heart. Every design on the quilts fills me with a lot of enthusiasm to be able to finish and sell them. My hobby is to be sewing for you and free moments I work in my humble little house that I share with my daughter. My dream is one day to be able to have my own humble little house and that my daughter can complete her studies. I only managed to go to sixth grade and I am very grateful for your great blessing. Thank you for being part of the group of enterprising women fighters, that today helps us to survive. I give you infinite thanks for your great support."
